write with me - poetry

some more poetry. this is one of my sisters poems. she, in my opinion, is a very talented writer

your words
are the swords
stabbing me in the back
every other step i take
your words
are the boulder on my back
that i carry with me
each step of the way
your words
are what stops me from running
stops me from living
stops me from breathing
stops me from believing
your words
are the wall between myself
and my happiness
your words
are the flow of my tears
your words
are everything i fear
every word lingers
on my ears
the devil on my shoulder
are your words
so much colder
than the person i knew
your words
attack me in my sleep
keeping me awake
so that i can not dream
nightmares torment my nights
and its your words
that stay in sight
always in the back of my head
pounding through my flesh
i forbid myself from showing
the pain that you have caused
the last thing that i want
is for you to know i've lost
your words
pierce into me
your words
are the heavyness on my heart
the part of me thats hateful
the thing that rips me apart
your words
drain me of the energy i need
to get by my day
the things that you've said
i really don't know if i'll be okay
but i'd never let you know
i'd die before i let it show
your words
speak to me at night
follow me through life
haunt me in my dreams
keep me from being free
the words that you said
can not leave me alone
will not sleep
wont let me go
your words
are you
your words
are untrue
everything you've said
is the ugliest part of you
your words
will make me cry no more
your words
are not worth what they were
